Maker

Qantu

Qantu is a chocolate maker based in Montreal. Qantu was started by Elfi and Maxime in 2016. This pair fell in love with bean to bar chocolate after researching cocoa after their first plantation visit in 2014. The immense passion and pride of the cocoa producers inspired them to create bean to bar chocolate. Qantu focuses on Peruvian cacao for the moment, which is where Maxime and Elfi met over a decade ago in Elfi’s home country. The name “ Qantu” (pronounced “Kantu”) derives from the name of the national flower of Peru and Bolivia. The word comes from the native language of the Peruvian Andes, Quechua, it represents a symbol of unity and hospitality.

Cacao Region

Piura, Peru

Piura is a department of northwestern Peru, bordered in the north by Ecuador and on the west by the Pacific Ocean. Several rivers run through the province from the region’s mountainous zones, serving to keep the coastal plantations naturally well-irrigated and productive year-round. The region is the second most-populous in the country, responsible for roughly a third of Peru’s annual petroleum production, as well as a significant amount of its mining. Similar to the rest of the country, much of Piura’s agriculture relies upon commercialized crops, such as sorghum, rice, corn, and yucca, though an increasing amount of native criollo cacao is being cultivated throughout the region.

Cacao Estate

Norandino Cooperative

Founded in 2005, the Cooperativa Norandino represents more than 7,000 families producing cocoa, coffee and panela across the north of Peru. Its mission is to improve the livelihoods of its member families by offering access to local and international markets. The cooperative is large by Peruvian standard, but it’s driven by its core values of transparency, equality, respect, responsibility, democracy and quality. All of Norandino's producers are Organic- and Fairtrade-certified, but because it represents cacao producers from so many regions of the country, chocolate makers are able to source Norandino cacao based on area of cultivation or even type of cacao. This allows makers to invest in a sustainable and equitable system while still maintaining control over their unique flavor proposition.

Happy i.T.
Happy in TN

I really tasted the honey in this bar there was a tart middle note but it ended sweet and smooth which made it very interesting. I highly recommend all for award winning Qantu bars you can't go wrong!!!

Refreshingly bright and tart

I like the fruitiness with a zing of tart that comes afterwards. It starts with a strong, bright honey & citrus, melts smoothly, and finishes with a zesty tartness that you don’t find in too many bars. Leaves a nice aftertaste. I recommend this if you like the combo of fresh fruity honey with a bit of tart yogurt kick.

citrusy

I agree with the previous reviewers that this bar is on the tart and citrusy side. The acidity is a bit too much to my liking, but still it's a high-quality bar.

Qantu Gran Blanco 70%

This Gran Blanco is juicy and refreshing with a zest of sour aroma. It showcases a perfect balance of interesting flavors as "sorbetto di cedro di Capri", honey, soft cocoa taste, sweet and tart raspberry undertones, treacle tart. The aftertaste is pure, simple, and clean with light sour/sweet aroma on the tip of your tongue. It is not my favorite but it has a straightforwardness that I have never tasted by other chocolate makers in the past few years.
